Hi everyone, I thought I’d take today to do a little post to show you where the blog takes place. You know, not in cyber space, but in reality. The place where I write the blog posts, take photos of recipes and pin brownies in my pajamas at 2AM because I can’t sleep. The last one is never a good idea, trust me.
I’m always interested in where other bloggers are inspired by. Are you writing your recipes as you cook on your laptop in the kitchen? Are you doing posts in bed late at night because there’s not enough hours in day? Or do you have a dedicated work area in your home?
We’ve had a separate studio space for our R+R work for over a year now and it was a great choice. We decided to get this space to try to separate work from life. I’m going to be honest and say it’s hard to separate life, love and work when your creative partner is also your husband. Lately I’ve been trying to set up a strong rule that we aren’t allowed to discuss work at home, we can’t work that late and we have to take off 1 day a week. I break all these rules as does Matthew (he’s worse I promise you).
None of these rules really come into effect with Brooklyn Farm Girl. As the blog continues to grow, I sometimes find myself overloaded with new posts, sponsored posts and reviews. Suddenly on top of my day job of being an artist, there’s blog deadlines and blog advertisers to please. It’s complicated and it’s long hours, but it’s also exciting and I’m a proud mama bear of BFG. Lately I’ve been trying to split my time in half – half at the studio, half at home with the blog. The problem here is that the blog is at home which means it’s always on. I really wish I could have a strict schedule and kick myself off the computer during the evening but I have no self will. Is anyone else work obsessed?
